Oliver Samuels’ “Divorce Papers”
“Divorce Papers,” the most popular and hilarious play of the 2015 Caribbean theatre season starring Oliver Samuels, Barbara McCalla, Maylynne Lowe and Dennis Titus will be staged this weekend and next weekend, in Brooklyn, Bronx and Queens. The star studded cast includes Dennis Titus who appeared in Denzel Washington’s blockbuster movie, The Mighty Quinn.
The New York City venues and dates are:
Brooklyn Center at Brooklyn College, Saturday, September 19, 8 pm
Lehman Center at Lehman College, Bronx, Saturday, September 26, 8pm
York Performing Arts Center at York College, Queens, Sunday, September 27, 4:30PM
“We can only do two weekends in New York,” says playwright Basil Dawkins “since we are booked in the USVI and England in October thru early November.”
Although the famed Oliver Samuels and Barbara McCalla lead the cast in the suspenseful comedy-play, Maylynne Lowe and Dennis Titus are sheer fabulous. The late Miss Lou of Jamaica and the aging Saint Lucia and Trinidad & Tobago Nobel Laureate, Derek Walcott, upon seeing the brilliant acting of Maylynne Lowe and Dennis Titus in “Divorce Papers” may proudly proclaim, “The future of Caribbean theater is in good hands.”
Actress Jean White says, “These days Jamaican theater and comedy fans don’t only see Oliver Samuels in an Oliver play, they also see young and brilliant stars … And, the creativity of the award winning playwright, Basil Dawkins.” White is confident that children and adults of all nationalities will enjoy the hilarious roles of Maylynne Lowe and Dennis Titus in “Divorce Papers.”
No wonder Rev. Devon Dick, pastor of the Boulevard Baptist Church in St Andrew, wrote in the Gleaner. “….This play is not only for persons who are divorced or who are contemplating divorce, but for all persons interested in romantic relationships. It is a play for the entire family.”
